Close or delete a review cycle

Closed reviews provide a summary of the final review status and include comments and feedback made during the review cycle. You can mark a review cycle as closed to prevent additional reviews and add a decision to capture a final outcome. When you no longer need to see the context from a review cycle, you can delete previous review cycles.

Any user with a collaborator seat can edit or delete a review cycle. Reviews can only be closed by the user who created the review.

Deleting a review cycle is a permanent action that removes the entire review block and all of the individual reviews and feedback within it. A deleted review cycle cannot be recovered.

Close a review cycle

The creator of a review request can close a review in a notebook from further feedback and view a summary of the results - including the final status of the review and the number of team members who have approved the work. This allows you to document a clear decision and take action on your next steps.
